IUAV-BCA Executive Development Programme 2016

Sustain & Retain



This Executive Development Programme will address the importance of striking a balance between the sustainability of our physical environment as well as the conservation of our cultural and built heritage. It will provide a balanced understanding of the green agenda that goes beyond the triple bottom line to also address the cultural, spatial and technological issues that beset our built environment. In particular, this course will:


       demonstrate how the principles of sustainability can be applied in the conservation, restoration and adaptation of historic structures;

       focus on integrating the conservation of the built heritage into urban and regional planning as a means of enhancing heritage tourism;

       explore ways in which tested building and conservation techniques still meet emerging standards for sustainability and energy conservation; and

       provide an insight into how indigenous building materials and passive design techniques help in retaining local cultural identity.





The 5-day programme comprises lectures, walking tours and a workshop to provide participants with a deep understanding on sustainability issues such as reducing carbon footprint in both micro and macro scales, as well as issues on heritage conservation and restoration. In addition, the lateral lectures in the evenings will provide inspiring insights into the parallel between some other industries, such as haircutting, with the built environment sector.




The target participants for this course are architects, consultants, developers and academics.



Programme will be conducted at Venice and Padova, Italy.
